Title : Monitoring of typical field work in different soil conditions using remote sensing – a literature review and some concepts for the future
Key words : remote sensing, GPS, digital maps, fertilization, harvesting, cultivation
Summary :

The objective of the study was to analyse actual possibilities of monitoring and controling different field work such as cultivation, fertilization, harvesting with the use of remote sensing techniques. Moreover, the analysis covered utilization of different type of machinery using remote sensing systems, searching for and collection of data on soil structure in certain agricultural areas and adjusting conditions for development of digital maps. Obtaining data by the use of remote sensing methods is integrated with information concerning spatial variability of soil and plants, which comes from registered units which provide recorded changes of different parameters, having importance from the point of view application in precision agriculture. Precision agriculture guarantees not only obtaining very high and good quality yields but also limits pollution of the natural environment and reduction of production costs. Bands which cover these features can measure iron and other soil components. Thermal bands are used for determination of the stage of plants growth and also for prediction of expected yield. Some plants which are warm and the others which are cool show up difference in thermal bands. Development of precise agriculture contributes to the management of the system by controlling farm machinery during field work, monitoring biomass and crop yields, taking soil samples, dosing mineral fertilizers and pesticides, field crops measurement, monitoring animals, generation of field parcels identification, monitoring farm machinery work. Satellite systems enable obtaining information on the soil structure and different types of crops with feed plants as well.
